Road Traffic and Accidents

We know you rely on your driving licence for work or family obligations, so losing that licence could have severe repercussions on your life. Whether you’re at risk of losing your personal licence or you’re a company whose employees have operator licences, we’ll speak for you in court in an effort to keep you on the road.

Help when you need it most

In the instance of a road traffic offence, it can sometimes be a confusing and stressful situation. We’ll listen to your side of the story, asking you about things you might not even think are relevant to see if there’s a way we can reduce any potential punishment. Our court success rate is excellent, and we’ve been able to protect our clients from losing their livelihood or access to their family.

No matter when the offence has happened, we can be there to support you – in one recent case, we attended the police station on a Saturday just hours after an incident occurred, securing our client’s release from custody that day.
